An appropriate response to being served a schnitzel plate at Barth's is to gasp and exclaim, "Oh, my god!" The picture menus leave you unprepared for the behemoth you just ordered. Despite the magnitude, the schnitzels here are gentle giants: greaseless and light, meant to be drizzled with lemon juice. A truck-stop diner's chicken-fried steak a quarter the size would feel like a ton in comparison. These schnitzels seem to float. In parts, the breading clings to the meat like stucco; in others, it puffs up like a half-deflated balloon. Wherever you land, every inch cuts so tender it surrenders at the mere suggestion of a fork.
